Mobilinkd TNC3

Sold out.

SOLD OUT -- due to high demand and the global chip shortage, the TNC3 is sold out. Things are now looking up.  PCBs are scheduled for assembly. We expect to have TNCs in early March.  We are not accepting back-orders.

The TNC3 builds upon the success of the TNC2 form factor, but offers a whole new class of performance.  The TNC3 presents a number of significant new features and enhancements.  

  • Bluetooth 4.2 support (dual-mode EDR/LE) iOS Compatible
  • USB serial port
  • DCD and TX indicator LEDs
  • More powerful DSP and modem
  • Higher dynamic range ADCs and DACs
  • Buffered inputs and outputs
  • Input amplifier for improved input level matching across a wider range of radios
  • Optimized for packet radio
  • 900mAh rechargeable battery lasts for 2 full days

The TNC3 is our first TNC designed for both APRS and general packet use.  It is specifically designed to interface with a wide range of mobile and base stations (as well as HTs).

**NEW** as of July 2020, the TNC3 is 9600 baud capable.

The TNC3 is a 1200/9600 baud KISS TNC.

This tiny KISS packet modem is battery powered and can run for 48 hours of continuous use.  Small and lightweight, the TNC measures 80x42x15mm (3.1x1.6x0.6") and weighs in at just 48g (1.75oz).

Please download and review the Mobilinkd TNC3 User's Guide.  We do not ship a manual with the TNC in order to keep costs down.

What you will need:


  • 80x42x15mm
  • 48g


The TNC3 is configured via Bluetooth from a smartphone app for iOS and Android.  The configuration app is available from the App Store and Google Play.

Shipping Notice

While we are out of stock on TNCs, we will only ship twice a week, generally Monday and Thursday.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected global commercial air traffic. This is effecting international mail delivery around the globe. Due to the extreme delays in int'l mail, we are only shipping outside the US via UPS and Priority Express mail. USPS is not honoring any delivery guarantees at this time.

If you need expedited delivery inside or outside the US, we recommend UPS for delivery. Shipments outside the US will almost certainly incur VAT, duty and brokerage fees payable to UPS before delivery is made.

We now offer free domestic shipping on orders over $100!

For our German customers, please consider purchasing from Funktechnik Dathe. They offer excellent local sales, service and support.

We do not ship to Russia or the Ukraine. We have many satisfied customers in those countries using remailers to get their Mobilinkd TNCs.

Customers outside the US are responsible for all local taxes, import duties, tariffs, and fees.
